brilliant in each n every dept, 1 July 2006
Author: sangamy from Baltimore, US

the two reasons to watch this flick are rgv, and nag. rgv's brilliant direction and nag's superb performance are the heart and soul of this movie. nag hardly has any dialogs. most of his performance comes from his facial expressions and body language. ramu failed in this venture as this movie did not appeal to the people.

this is one of the best movies from rgv. also, this is one of the best movies in nag's career(in my view , actually, the only best movie of nag's).

i mostly liked this because of it's content. i still enjoy watching this movie as it has strong human emotions that have ever been captured on celluloid. IT'S A RAW FILM.

PS: did i mention that this was the first rgv movie in which the lead character is a out-and-out gangster(of course, Shiva too has gangster theme but the hero was a student-turned-gangster)
